Now this is hilarious: John McCain calls on Joe The Plumber to stand up and be recognized...but Joe's nowhere to be found, and it confuses the hell out of McCain.
Joe must have been trying to get a record deal or something...

Update (9:43AM): In the comments, Trix noted that two-thirds of the crowd were bused in school students:
A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses.
